Safe to cross

SAFE TO CROSS

Big brown columns plunge their feet
into murky waters, secure my bridge.

The river flows slowly, undeterred.

A boat sends its lonely laments
answered by a gull´s circling screeches.

The river flows slowly, undeterred.

Sunset signals old lanterns to start
they throw pools of yellow hopeful light.

The river flows slowly, undeterred.

It is safe. I can continue my walk unafraid
Cross this bridge to find a new home.
